Jeff Ayres Working Out With Spurs

Former Spurs center/power forward Jeff Ayres is working out with the team in advance of training camp, tweets international basketball writer David Pick.

The 29-year-old Ayres spent two seasons in San Antonio and was part of the 2014 championship team, but he wasn’t re-signed after the 2014/15 season. He was the first player selected in the 2015 D-League draft and spent much of the season in Idaho before joining the Clippers in January. After playing on two 10-day contracts, Ayres signed with the team for the remainder of the season. He appeared in 17 games for L.A., averaging 1.8 points and 1.3 rebounds in limited playing time. Ayres has also played for the Trail Blazers and Pacers in his six-year NBA career.

The Spurs have just 13 players under contract, so they have flexibility if they decide to add Ayres. San Antonio has a need for front court depth after Tim Duncan retired, Boban Marjanovic signed with the Pistons and David West joined the Warriors.

I remember watching him play for the Trail Blazers and thinking, “This guy plays with passion!”

Yes Bonnor was a fan favorite but let’s be real… there was much better talent we could’ve gotten to fill his role and character not be a issue. I get loyalty and all but to have his name next to guys like Duncan Robinson manu and Parker as longest tenured Spurs… Read more »
